It had to happen, going back to France I mean. It's been nearly two years since we've been there and frankly that's far too long. We had planned to go this past summer but, as often happens, matters of greater import intervened and we had to rearrange our lives for the moment.
The plan, as it stands so far, is to leave Boston on British Airways 13 May, landing in Paris the following day and return to the US on 28 May.
What happens in between those two dates will be the focus of my upcoming posts as we find our focus for this next trip. But right now we plan to take the train from Paris (right from the airport) probably to Montpellier and from there rent a car. We've tentatively arranged to meet our friends Richard and Pauline in Limoux, and the four of us will spend several days exploring Cathar castles (with Pauline as guide) and perhaps even catch a glimpse of prehistoric cave paintings in Niaux, all in the foothills of the Pyrenees before Richard and Pauline have to return to the UK and we head north.
From the Languedoc we hope to spend a night or two in the Massif Central portion of France before returning to Paris for a week, possibly at our old apartment on General Renault. Chi lo sa?!
